Great idea. Simple enough to make you wonder, "why didn't I think of that". Similar to the fx5 and fx6 purge valve.

Doesn't sound like you need to replace them. Just clean them routinely. There was probably too much gunk, for impeller to turn. And I believe the red ring is part of the flow indicator function. HTH

He's looking pretty bad. I would suggest lots of water changes. And if he can tolerate it, treat with salt and metro. Temp should be at least 84.
